Stories about President Obama’s personal legacy including the details of an iconic photograph of a young black boy touching the hair of the first black president in the Oval Office. Plus, over eight years Obama and Vice President Joe Biden have a formed a deep friendship that is unusual for many presidents and VPs. First Lady Michelle Obama also made her mark on the White House and presidency during the past eight years, but she’s ruled out her own future run for office.
